Apparently there has long been a dispute over who first created the Cobb salad.
Whoever is running around trying to claim that they were the first to throw a bunch of meat and stuff with some lettuce together might have to find something else to do.
As always, I just threw all my favourite ingredients together: blue cheese, bacon, avocado, eggs, tomatoes, ham.
Maybe no one ever thought of putting blue cheese in a Cobb salad before… which clearly means I invented Cobb Salad 2.0! Or better yet the Allie Salad. Time to invade Wikipedia and record my fantastic discovery. Betcha that’s what the original Mr. Cobb said…well maybe not that he’d wiki it, but I bet he was gosh darn excited.
2 romaine hearts, roughly chopped
1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
3 eggs, hardboiled and chopped
5 slices of bacon, crumbled
